I came to the Academy of the Holy Family with no work ethic and desire for learning. This changed during my freshman year at AHF. With the support of the teachers and mentors I had, I was able to see the importance of education. I started to work hard and gain the motivation to do my best in school. Now, I can proudly say I am in the National Honor Society and I am getting ready to go to college! As an eighth grader, I did not think this would be possible for me. I am thankful for this opportunity and grateful for what it has done for me.
